Cookie Policy

The Learning Management System ("LMS") is delivered through websites and software ("Platforms") which are owned and/or operated by the Dubai College Tourism LLC ("DCT") and Lobster International S.A. or an affiliate thereof ("Lobster").

In this Cookie Policy we use the term "we" or "us" to refer to DCT and Lobster. A person that enrols on a course provided through the LMS is referred to as a "Student" or "you".

This Cookie Policy should be read together with the LMS Terms and Privacy Policy.

INFORMATION ABOUT THE USE OF COOKIES

The Platforms use online cookies to distinguish you from other Students. This helps us to provide you with a better experience when you use the LMS and also allows us to improve the LMS. By accessing the LMS, you agree to our use of cookies.

A cookie is a small file of letters and numbers that we store on your browser or the hard drive of your computer if your browser settings are configured to accept cookies. Cookies contain information that is transferred to our computer's hard drive.

We use cookies to enable us to recognize your computer and customise your online experience. It also helps us keep track of the content you view, so that we can understand and analyse your usage and the usage of students enrolled on the LMS ("Students") on an aggregate basis.

We analyse the data collected by cookies to measure traffic patterns and to determine which areas of the LMS have been visited. If you do not wish to receive cookies, you can set your browser so that your computer does not accept them. You can find out how to do this, and find more information about cookies, at www.allaboutcookies.org. However, if you use your browser settings to block all cookies (including essential cookies), some content on the LMS may not display properly or you may not be able to access all or parts of the LMS.

We may use the following cookies:

  • Strictly necessary cookies. These are cookies that are required for the operation of the Platforms. They include, for example, cookies that enable you to log into the LMS or access content that is only accessible to enrolled Students.

  • Analytical/performance cookies. They allow us to recognise and count the number of Students using the LMS. This helps us to improve the way the LMS works, for example, by ensuring that Students are finding what they are looking for easily.

  • Functionality cookies. These are used to recognise you when you return to the LMS. This enables us to personalise our content for you, greet you by name and remember your preferences.

  • Targeting cookies. These cookies record your visit to the LMS, the pages you have visited and the links you have followed.

Please note that third parties (including, for example, content creation, development and distribution partner networks and providers of external services like web traffic analysis services) may also use cookies, over which we have no control. These cookies are likely to be analytical/ performance cookies or targeting cookies.
